Publisher's Summary

Rescue is the 11th book of a series of near-future scifi thrillers whose young heroine Ell Donsaii has a nerve mutation that makes her a genius, providing her with some astonishing athletic abilities. In Rescue, President Stockton tells the FBI to tone down its efforts to imprison Ell. Unfortunately, the SCDF, a group of ultraconservative survivalists now has the President in their sights. Their attack on the president succeeds far beyond anyone’s imagination. Could it be that Stockton’s very life will now depend on the woman she has been imprisoning and harassing?

Meanwhile, Stell Simsworth, the 10-year-old blind singing sensation, is hoping that Ryan will be able to use his technology to restore her eyesight. Carter is working on a project to colonize Mars (despite his daughter’s cogent observation that a colony would have high risks, but provide few benefits).

Bummer

A lot of this book was a love story! The author apparently forgot what made his series so interesting! About 1/3 of this book was worth the credit!

Pretty Much Perfect

Whatever credit Laurence E. Dahners gets for crafting these masterfully written, high-tech, sci-fi adventures, it ain’t enough. The joy he and narrator Laura Bannister have brought me over the course of daily commutes to and from work cannot be overestimated, and these stories are real gems. This particular novel, Rescue, has all the elements one might hope for in an Ell Donsaii story — a little romance, a little tech-wizardry, some exciting action scenes, and a bit of series-arching plot points to move the series forward. I will acknowledge the Mary Sue-ness of Dahner’s central protagonist (as well as some others) and say, simply, so what about it? Dahner’s writing provides a much needed counterbalance to all of the let’s-torture-the-hero stories out there. Enough said for now.

yet another fun story

The saying of "Absolute power corrupts absolutely." is shown in this tale.
Laura Bannister again does a fine job.
I am consistently impressed dahners Medical, Technical, and Scientific background understanding. They simply make his writings that much more of a pleasure to read or listen to.
I own the Vaz series in four in Kindle and the three Audible releases. In the El Donsai series sixteen in Kindle and now eleven in Audible.
Definitely a young, fun, entertaining, and weirdly informative writings.
